I have a 2000 honda accord ex v6 with 107000 miles on it it was in a wreck a month ago still have not got car back but anyway I got hit on the drivers side from the headlight all the way to the drivers door and the middle of the hood. The hood crunched all way to window. My airbags did not deploy I was traveling about 60 miles an hour what could be the reason they didnt deploy? Also, before wreck I had no problems with trans. I went to go pick it up from getting repaired and I asked to drive it to make sure everything right the man asked me if I had a shift kit on it I told him no so we get in the car and he cranks it and the check engine light is on and the d4 lite flashing while in park. He put it in reverse and I thought the motor and or trans fell on the ground it jerked so hard so he back out and put in 1st gear I never had to drive car in 1st I ask why he said because it wont drive in d4 or d3 at all. He told me they would have to take it to honda and get them to put on a diagnostic machine to see what was wrong with it. On the way to honda the car broke down because the alternator bracket broke and it has been sitting at a honda place for now 3 weeks they said they would have to call an engineer to see what the problem was! Can anyone anybody please please help me and gimme some suggestions of what could be wrong I had a trans service in 06 and have it checked when get oil change everything fine no leaks and nothing wrong until now. Please help me

To be honest with you Manrod, I wouldn't want to touch that car again. If you were in an accident at that speed, the jolt was pretty tremendous. You will find you are constantly replacing things. I would bet the O2 sensors are going to shell soon and that transmission is something I would demand to be replaced. The jolt and the pressure that it received from a direction that it is not designed to take it from must have been rough. I baby the tranny all I can on the Hondas.

The air bags probably didn't deploy based on the location that the impact was at. If it had hit the door or the front bumper I would bet they would have deployed. You know what the impact did to you and you have a body that carries everything suspended but the car isn't designed like that. The residual issues with that crash will continue to haunt you.

Good luck!

Thank you bruce in response to your message I did get hit on the front bumper I actually got hit from the middle of the hood all the way to the driver door including bumper fender tire everything and the hood was crunched up to the windshield I would have thought that at least the driver airbag would have come out. When someone sit on the passenger side if they do not sit straight up the srs light comes on could that light coming on make the system be turned off or be reset to make them seem as tho the bags have been deployed? I personally do not want the car anymore due to the problems I am having to get it fixed and I thank you for your quick response

If the srs light comes on yes it could stop deployment. If the passenger leans against the door it would possibly stop the side air bags from deploying.
